Following interpretation of the exam an electronic report is transmitted back to our providers for them to view. This process can take up to 3 business days. Diagnostic imaging personnel are not authorized to discuss what is seen on exams or release exam results to patients. Please reach out to your primary care manager for results. Results may also be obtained online through TRICARE online approximately 7 business days following your exam. Diagnostic imaging orders from civilian providers are welcome.

Results will be faxed to off-base providers after they have been interpreted by a radiologist. At this time we do not accept prescriptions from chiropractic clinics.
